Whitmer's Latest Order: Two-Year-Olds Must Mask Up On The Bus

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s latest executive order requires children as young as age 2 who are attending a child care organization or camp to wear a face mask while on a school bus or other transportation. Executive Order 164 takes effect Aug. 10.

Children age 4 and up must wear a face mask at child care facilities or camp while in indoor hallways or common areas.

The governor “strongly encourages” 2-year-olds to wear face masks while in classrooms, homes, cabins or similar indoor settings.
